Twins' off-season moves and rumors report: 11/16/2016

This is the third installment of the Twins 2016-2017 off-season rumors and moves report.  You can find the first one here and the second here.

I will be bringing news for Twins moves and rumored interest as they come periodically, leaving the names of interesting parties as are unless something changes about their status, adding new information as it comes.  As previously, this is actually reported interest, and not "who fits where" hypothetical interest.  I will be adding information about former Twins as it happens, but not rumors, as well.  This is what has happened or rumored to have happened so far:

Not a transaction, but it impacts who the Twins will protect on their 40-man roster, RHP Zack Jones had surgery to correct a torn labrum in September (and the sitting duck Twins' Front Office never bothered to publicize) and will be out of baseball activities for at least 12 months, in what appears like a lost 2017 season.

From the former Twins' news department:
